Internet of Medical Things(IoMT) and telemedicine technologies utilize computers, communications, and medical devices to facilitate off-site exchanges between specialists and patients, specialists, and medical staff. If the information communicated in IoMT is illegally steganography, tampered or leaked during transmission and storage, it will directly impact patient privacy or the consultation results with possible serious medical incidents. Steganalysis is of great significance for the identification of medical images transmitted illegally in IoMT and telemedicine. In this paper, we propose a Residual and Enhanced Discriminative Network(RED-Net) for image steganalysis in the internet of medical things and telemedicine. RED-Net consists of a steganographic information enhancement module, a deep residual network, and steganographic information discriminative mechanism. Specifically, a steganographic information enhancement module is adopted by the RED-Net to boost the illegal steganographic signal in texturally complex high-dimensional medical image features. A deep residual network is utilized for steganographic feature extraction and compression. A steganographic information discriminative mechanism is employed by the deep residual network to enable it to recalibrate the steganographic features and drop high-frequency features that are mistaken for steganographic information. Experiments conducted on public and private datasets with data hiding payloads ranging from 0.1bpp/bpnzac-0.5bpp/bpnzac in the spatial and JEPG domain led to RED-Net's steganalysis error PE in the range of 0.0732-0.0010 and 0.231-0.026, respectively. In general, qualitative and quantitative results on public and private datasets demonstrate that the RED-Net outperforms 8 state-of-art steganography detectors.
